Although it had been around for decades, liposuction is still one of the most popular procedures for removing unwanted fat and achieving a slimmer physique. New advancements in medical technology have made it safer, easier and more effective than ever.
What is Liposuction?
Also known as liposculpture, liposuction is a surgical procedure for removing fat from targeted areas of the body. Most people who are interested in liposuction struggle with fat deposits in their arms, thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen and back.
These fat deposits are often stubborn and will not shrink or disappear, no matter how much the person diets or exercises.
The liposuction procedure can be performed as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with another surgery, such as a Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck or breast augmentation.
Why Undergo Liposuction?
Liposuction is a reliable and safe method for finally getting rid of the fat deposits that affect so many people. The result is a toned, sculpted physique that they’ve struggled for years to achieve.
Some of the other benefits of liposuction include: shorter recovery times than with other surgical procedures, less scarring, natural-looking results, being used on many different areas of the body, improving confidence in your appearance, and allowing a much wider array of clothing options.
Although liposuction can be an ideal procedure for many people, it’s not right for everyone.
Potential candidates for liposuction include: people who are near their ideal weight, those who have good skin elasticity, and those who possess realistic expectations.
Liposuction may not be a good option for people who have clotting disorders, a history of adverse reactions to anesthesia or suffer from breathing problems, heart disease, active infections, and reduced immunity or diabetes.
The Liposuction Procedure
Procedure time may vary. The techniques used can vary, and the one that will be used in your case depends on your unique situation, but they all follow the same basic pattern.
Minor incisions may be made in the areas to be treated. To remove the unwanted fat, a small, vacuum-powered tube may be inserted into the incisions.
The recovery from liposuction is fairly short, and most patients can return to their jobs in a few days. After your surgery, you may develop minor swelling, tenderness, and bruising.
The surgeon may require you to wear a compression garment. This helps to minimize swelling and ensure optimal results. It is strongly recommended to adhere to a proper diet and exercise plan so you can maintain your results.
